Hundreds of innocent men, women, and children brutally attacked, their homes and shops burned, in the heinous June 1–2, 1941 Arab-Nazi pogrom in Baghdad. This was beginning of the end of Iraqi Jewry. Farhud means “violent dispossession.” But could it happen again—even in the US.

You are invited by Congregation Ohav Zedek of Wilkes-Barre with Temple Israel and the Jewish Community Alliance, plus Beth Sholom Scranton, Sons of Israel, Kesher Israel, and others.

Remember the hundreds who died in Baghdad on June 1, 1941—the beginning of the end of Jewry in Iraq. Can it happen again—in Europe or the United States?
